Hailing from the Czech Republic, by way of Boston, and now based in the San Francisco Bay area, Lenkadu is a mid-tempo live electronica performer. Her sets combine the power of a DJ with the vulnerability of a live performer. She samples her field recordings, makes beats and processes her voice, thumb piano, mouth harp and shaker, while controlling Ableton Live with her feet. Lenkadu music draws from electronic music, avant-garde sound art and progressive metal.
Building on an extensive experience as a VJ, video is an integral element of her music. Lenkadu's shows are ethereal and psychedelic experiences fueled by an empowered yet gentle vision of personal transformation and collective consciousness.
Known for touring nationwide, her notable shows include opening for acts such as Bassnectar and Lotus as well as amazing sets at Miami Winter Conference, Earthdance and The Philadelphia Experiment.
Lenkadu released an EP album Redshift in February 2011, since then remixed by producers worldwide. In January 2012, she released collaborative album Sonic Bank with various US producers. Since her move west she keeps her fans involved with continuous online releases of new music and videos, most recently Forgotten Gods, Into the Slipstream and Floating. Lenkadu is gearing up towards a full-length album in the fall 2013 and a European tour in the summer of 2013.
Lenkadu is more than a singular artist. It is a collaborative platform for fellow producers, musicians, designers and artists whose sensibilities and dedication align with those of Lenka Chludova.
Welcome, eternity starts here!
